It seems i maybe wasn`t patient previously. This time round.
I tried it with the same amount of pictures and it took ages but this no music
was stuttering so i left it and finally it sorted itself out.

I forgot to add my username to the last comment.
Anyhow this is the second time this has happened. I downloaded another copy and
all was fine. So i`ll try that again.
Keep up the good work.

I like this viewer but i am having slight problems with it.
This is the latest version.

I load up a pictures folder and play some an mp3 with it and it caches
before it start displaying pictures. During the caching the mp3 will
stutter a couple of times then on the third it freezes.
I cold reboot then on trying to start the program i get
"Division by Zero"
"File:AmigaScrap.hws(currentline: 145-In function: p_picturedirscan)"
All in a HollywoodPlayer window.

The ability to choose different backgrounds wasn't working right in version 2.6.
It is fixed in version 2.6.5.

I like your suggestions and have implemented them in the latest CollageBlanker
instead of AmigaScrapbook---recursive directory scanning is not so practicle
when you are limited to the number of pictures that can be displayed.
Comment by: Hans ( 23 Mar 2007, 16:46File version: 2.5
For ignoring non-image files, may I suggest using the IsPicture() command. I
just looked at an old Hollywood 1.93 script of mine, and that's what I used to
filter out non-image files.
Comment by: Hans ( 23 Mar 2007, 16:40File version: 2.5
Could you please add recursive directory scanning? I have an images directory
with sub-directories that I'd like to use. I'm using a soft-link to this
directory which works fine (although I wish that I could just tell
AmigaScrapbook where to look).

Also, AmigaScrapbook fails whenever it encounters a .info file. It should either
ignore these files, or better still, be tolerant of non image files and skip
over them.

Other than those two issues, it works quite well.

It was just reported to me that the latest AmigaScrapbook does not work without
the newest pngalpha.lib that was included with the latest Hollywood (2.5).
Andreas has said that he is going to be uploading that library to Aminet very

You actually can still use AmigaScrapbook without this library as long as none
of your pictures in the main "Pictures" drawer are ones with
alpha-channels (having ALPHA in the picture name just before the extension).
The new library is really only necessary for saving resized png pictures with
alpha-channels. (This is the case with one of the sample pictures included).
Everything should work fine with any other picture type. So you can just remove
all pictures from the main "Pictures" drawer that have ALPHA in the
title just before the extension; or just wait for Andreas to upload the newest
pngalpha library.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Where can I find the pngalpha.library ?
Comment by: PEB ( 10 Jul 2006, 22:27File version: 2.0

Good suggestion!
It has been added in the new version (2.1).
If you do need to choose a different font, make sure that it is as close to
"Bitstream Vera Sans Bold" as possible (for alignment purposes).
AmigaScrapbook will also now use the font that you selected for the
auto-generated Exif data display.
Comment by: AlexC ( 09 Jul 2006, 15:53File version: 2.0
Here it starts a black to white curtain effect then exits complaining that it
can't find Bitstream Vera Sans Bold.font with size 25.

I don't have that font (I renamed it VeraSansB.font because I got tired of
typing a long name with spaces).

Maybe it could open a font requester when the desired font can't be found?

Working now, thanks :-)

When I run AmigaScrapbook (1024x768) I get:

Error locking directory!
File: AmigaScrapbook1024x768.hws (current line:53 - In function: ReadDirectory)

I also had to recreate the AdditionalPrograms directory because it was only an
icon and could not be opened.
